Great, then can you identify when it stopped working by testing older builds?

Build #0727 is the last one where it's working

Very odd. There are no obvious changes in #0728 that might cause this, except possibly the firmware bump (perhaps also the kernel modules change, but that should only affect DVB drivers). To rule out the firmware, can you perform the following steps:

1. Boot into #0727 and - after confirming the drive mounts correctly - run:
Code:
mkdir /storage/fw0727
cp /flash/bootcode.bin /flash/start.elf /flash/fixup.dat /storage/fw0727

2. In #0727, can you post the link for "journalctl -a | pastebinit" after connecting the drive.

3. Boot into #0728 and confirm the drive does NOT mount.

4. In #0728, can you post the link for "journalctl -a | pastebinit" after connecting the drive.

5. In #0728, run the following:
Code:
cd /storage/fw0727
mount -o remount,rw /flash
cp * /flash
mount -o remount,ro /flash
reboot

6. In #0728 (now with #0727 firmware) connect the drive and confirm whether it mounts or not.

7. Finally, in #0728 (with #0727 firmware) can you post the link for "journalctl -a | pastebinit" after connecting the drive.

To get back to a system with matched firmware simply upgrade to your preferred build.

Here are the logs
#0727 http://sprunge.us/AVdd
#0728 http://sprunge.us/CGiJ
#0728 (#0727 firmware) http://sprunge.us/BbBE

I did everything how you wrote but still it isn't working in #0728 how can I see if flashing the firmware was successful?

Thanks.

When you run "vcgencmd version" the date of the firmware should be "Jul 22 2017 00:01:46" for the #0727 firmware, and "Jul 28 2017 20:20:00" for #0728 firmware.

You can also run "dmesg | grep soc:firmware" (also present in "journalctl -a") and based on your third log "#0728 (#0727 firmware)" confirms you booted with #0727 firmware.

I'll have to have a think, not really sure what might be causing this right now.

@dascoco: This might be the smoking gun - from the two #0728 based logs:

Code:
Aug 10 18:46:40 LibreELEC udevil[730]: fuse: device not found, try 'modprobe fuse' first

I think there's something broken with the kernel modules. Will investigate.

@dascoco With #0809 (or #0728) can you go to the LibreELEC Settings addon and in the System section, at the bottom of the list on the right side, enable "CrazyCat DVB drivers" and reboot.

Once the system has restarted can you now try connecting your exFAT drive and confirm if that has had any effect (you can then disable the CrazyCat drivers if you wish) - the link for "journalctl -a | pastebinit" would be appreciated.

If this works it's not a solution, but would help confirm the cause of the issue.

Edit: On second thoughts enabling the DVB drivers probably won't have any effect, but there are some clues in your logs which will hopefully get us to a solution. I'll let you know when we have something for testing. Thanks.

I activated the CrazyCat drivers but it has no effect.

Could you please run the following command with build #0728 and then upload the systemd.svg file?
Code:
systemd-analyze plot > systemd.svg

so long,

@popcornmix the issue with tvheadend has been reported in the x86 thread so is not RPi specific - @peak3d could PR12651 be responsible?

Hello, pretty much a newbie here, but with the kind help of the libreelec tv forum, managed to update myself to these builds and have had a mostly working system with the Hauppauge dual tuner 1595. I have moved to #810 which has fixed tvheadon issues as mentioned.

I keep getting these messages for any of the builds whenever I try to update the tvhead htsc client: (found the same message in the log).
20:02:06.360 T:1556083616 ERROR: CAddonInstallJob[pvr.hts]: The dependency on xbmc.codec version 1.0.1 could not be satisfied.

Also for updating tvheadon , the GUI is telling me under dependencies: os.libreelec.tv Unavailable.

Thanks for any advice.

Why are you trying to update the pvr.hts client when the latest version is built-in to these builds? Just enable it, there's nothing to update.

If you want to install tvheadend, use the latest version I provide: addons.
